The Magnolia Run is EFGA's longest running fundraiser (31 years!) and we hope that you can help make 2014 our best yet. In 2013, EFGA celebrated the Magnolia Run's 30th anniversary last year with a record breaking 79 teams, almost 1500 participants and raised more than $123,000!! We cannot express our gratitude enough to the entire epilepsy community as well as the friends, family, and loved ones living with epilepsy who support this event.

The Magnolia Run is held on a flat course at Perimeter Mall and the surrounding streets. The course is accomodating to runners and walkers of all ages, speeds and athletic abilities. Dogs and strollers are welcome, but are asked to keep to the right if moving at a slower speed.

NEW FOR 2014!

- EFGA would like to honor and recognize participants who have epilepsy and seizure disorders. EFGA will provide a special Purple t-shirt for those participants with epilepsy to be worn at the Magnolia Run. When registering please select the size for the Purple T-Shirt. We will mail the t-shirts out prior to the event, deadline to have your shirt before the event is August 1st. Please note this is only for the special purple t-shirt intended to honor those with epilepsy, no race shirts will be given out in advance. THE DEADLINE TO RECEIVE THE PURPLE TSHIRT IN ADVANCE HAS PASSED. PLEASE CONTACT ALY@EPILEPSYGA.ORG TO REQUEST A PURPLE TSHIRT. WE CANNOT GUARANTEE SIZE/AVAILABILITY FOR THOSE WHO REQUEST AFTER AUGUST 1ST.

- The 5k will begin at 7:30 am and the 1mile will begin at 8:15am. Participants are welcome to participate in both, but please know that you must finish the 5k quickly to start the walk with everyone. The Award Ceremony will begin around 8:45am for 5k finishers followed by Team Recognition.

- Awards will only be given to the following finishers, Male/Female Overall, Male/Female Masters Overall, and the 1st place finisher for Male/Female in their respective age groups. Awards will also be given to the top 5 fundraising teams. The Awards Ceremony will begin around 8:45am.

- EFGA wants to help you train for your best 5k ever!! Join fellow runners in Raising Epilepsy Awareness - ONE MILE AT A TIME! Encourage friends and family to support you through a 6 week 5k training while raising funds and awareness for epilepsy at the same time.

Form a Team!

You will never walk alone in the Magnolia Run! However, it’s more fun to do it as a team. Forming a team can strengthen family relationships, bring neighbors together and create a sense of camaraderie in the workplace and at the schoolhouse. Creating a team also allows you to honor or memorialize someone you know or loved in a unique way. EFGA offers special recognition to teams with both signage and verbal recognition the day of the race, as well as prizes for the teams raising the most money and having the most participants. Teams also encourage creativity, as many choose to create unique "team" shirts on their own to send a special message and enhance their team identity. The Magnolia Run is a rainbow of colors and filled with team spirit the day of the event.

Best of all, teams help to raise dramatically more funds to support the Epilepsy Foundation of Georgia in its’ mission to create a greater quality of life for the more than 150,000 Georgians living with a seizure disorder. Put together your team today and get ready for an experience of a lifetime!
